Garth's Story...
Garth is a super sweet male Golden Retriever /Border Collie mix who has had all of his shots and is neutered, He is heartworm negative and a wonderful dog. Garth normally has long hair but I had to shave him as he was so matted when we rescued him! (I included a picture of him with long hair) Garth was abandoned by his owners when they lost their home and moved and left him behind. He was in the back yard for at least six months and luckliy the neighbors where dog lovers and fed him until they found us. Garth is housebroken and has great house manners and he loves laying on the couch and snuggling beside you. Garth loves other dogs, loves children and everyone he meets. Garth was Heartworm positive when we rescued him but he has completed his treatment and is now heartworm free. He is untested with cats. Please give Garth a chance and you will fall in love with him. He is a great dog who is calm and super sweet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Garth, a Portland Golden Retriever/Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Golden Retriever/Border Collie for sale in Portland, or seeking a Golden Retriever/Border Collie dog from a breeder in Portland.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Portland already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Portland breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Golden Retriever/Border Collie breeders who help with Golden Retriever/Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
